The squeak is caused by dry rubber bushings in the suspension parts, try sraying all the rubber bushings you see with Silicone spray, soak them good, it should help.

It could be the wishbones, the springs or the inside panels rubbing which is also very common. Also, some shocks have plastic shields on them that tend to squeak

Replace your coil springs and shocks, while your at it you might want to check your cv joints if you hear any popping with the squeaking.

Have you checked the belts attached to the alternator? A worn belt can squeak anytime, especially when wet and occasionally the bearings inside the pulleys squeak if not lubricated.

Jeep Cherokee - Sqeaking Undercarriage


If the "sqeak" is more pronoused while going over bumps, then it is most likely a bushing in the front end. Check your fuel tank straps also, they may be loose. Sounds like this are always a pain to locate. Make sure nothing is in the back cargo area. You can also take your foot and shake the exhaust, WHILE THE CAR IS COOLED OFF OF COURSE.
You can also push down on each corner of the vehicle in the front and stand on the rear bumper to try to simulate or isolate the noise. That's all I have for ya. Good luck.

Recurring Front end squeak in 97 Acura CL


lol, well...you can either go the route of the previous persons solution or you can- if you are positive the sqeak is coming from the ball joints-spray some WD-40 on it. I wouldnt suggest replacing it again, since you just did it and chances are there is nothing wrong with the integrity of the part, your just getting an annoying byproduct lol. Like when belts sqeak(which p's me off but i just turn my radio up lol).
